Aussie Christmas Nail Challenge - Christmas Tree

Today's Aussie Christmas Nail Challenge is CHRISTMAS TREE.
I knew exactly which polish I wanted to use for this as soon as I saw it.  Loki's Lacquer Max Help Me.... I'm Feeling!  The name is a quote from the movie The Grinch and yeh the colours are all Grinchy but to me the polish looks just like a Christmas tree.  Looking at the bottle it's just like looking into the tangled innards of a decorated pine tree.
I started with 2 coats of Ulta3 Frog Prince which is a pretty awesome green.  It's smooth, shiny without need for topcoat and easy to apply.  This one has a good brush too :)
Frog Prince is a pretty good match for the colour of the green shimmer of Max Help Me.... I'm Feeling! but still a dark enough contrast that the shimmer stands out
Then I added 2 coats of Max Help Me.... I'm Feeling!  This is without top coat.
The glitter was easy to spread and the bars sit nice and flat.  I love the green shimmer.  It reminds me of the CND shimmer effects but stronger.  I could happily swim in a vat of this green shimmer :)
Then I ruined it.  I painted on strings of tinsel in a-England Holy Grail (the new edition).  It wasn't too bad at that stage but I had the brilliant idea to stick silver holo bar glitter to the tinsel strings.
It didn't stick very well and loose bar glitter is an absolute pain to work with.  I had glitter everywhere!  I started to stick some purple hexes on for decorations but gave up after one.  I had to remove all of this just so I could cook dinner without getting bar glitter in the food :(
I'm going to have to revisit the Frog Prince and Max Help Me.... I'm Feeling! without the tinsel 'art' one day.
